Forum: etree Subject: File Renaming bug

I think I found out why some of the tracks of shows I upload are listed out of order in the player. During mucking around in the files and meta data sections I discovered that the file names are changed by archive.org during their processing. Specifically each file is capitalized, but it looks like some of them aren't for some reason. (I don't know why they need to be changed like this, but whatever). I've had this happen before but never looked into it since I learned how to update the meta data. I found it on this show. https://archive.org/details/nm2018-09-29 Maybe archive could look at the history and tell me what I am doing wrong or maybe it's a bug?

This happens when you put spaces in your file names. If you don't use spaces, it doesn't happen. Not a bug, really.

I actually encode the song name in the file with spaces. Since I don't use linux this works for me. Too bad not for you

1. I don't use linux either.
b. But, I know linux doesn't like spaces in file names and I know the Internet Archive will strip them out and change the case to toggle case.
III. I'd rather have my files sorted properly so I either (a) don't use spaces, or (2) use standard etree naming standards that don't include song titles in the file names since I tag my FLAC files.

Now, Marty, you can choose to do what you want and give snarky replies when a volunteer is trying to help you. Or not.

Be kind, it is easier.
